Yep, you guessed it! We have another party to attend this weekend. You all should be proud of me the party is today and I am not, I repeat, not making this card today. I was able to get it finished earlier in the week. I am making a very concerted effort to get my projects done ahead of time, this makes my life so much easier. Of course, I do still live in the real world and I am sure that I will be whipping something up last minute before too long. I am calling this card, theThree Bears Birthday Card.
I have been checking out the amazing coloring that people in our hobby are doing with Copics, colored pencils, and a combination of both. I am so inspired to get better and will be doing more coloring in the days to come. To start this card, I stamped the right-hand bear and then masked him and stamped the next, and then I repeated the process for the final bear. I used Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black. Then I went to coloring with my Copic markers. Once completed I added the little accents with my gel pen.
I rounded the corners of my central image and added coordinating mats and a few eyelets. Then i mounted my bears with pop-dots onto the fun pattern paper and added a piece of grosgrain ribbon. I added the sentiment by cutting out the letters with an old QuicKutz alphabet called Oatmeal using bight green paper. I glued these to my card front and embellished with green glitter glue. Not to be outdone, my bears got a little glitter on their ears and muzzles.
This little card was so much fun and I am excited to keep working on my coloring skills.
